We present updates to the Speech Recognition Virtual Kitchen (SRVK) environment, a repository of pre-configured Virtual Machines (VMs) containing tools and experiments in the speech and language field. SRVK promotes community sharing of research techniques, fosters innovative experimentation, and provides solid reference systems as a tool for education, research, and evaluation. VMs provide a consistent environment for experimentation, without requiring tedious installation of many individual tools, a web-based community platform complements the VMs, allowing users to jointly explore, learn and collaborate using VMs. In this Show&Tell demo, we present the infrastructure to the speech community, along with several example VMs and a set of online error analysis tools. We solicit feedback from the community, in order to further guide development of the kitchen, which we hope to grow into a widely used community resource.
